The Archaeological Museum in Nafplion reopened in 2009 after years spent repairing damage caused by an earthquake. Its exhibits include artifacts from many important periods, including Neolithic, Chalcolithic, Helladic, Mycenaean, Classical, Hellenistic and Roman. The building itself is a treasure; it was originally a Venetian arsenal, and the museum is located in the old barracks. Thanks to the extensive renovations, it’s one of the more modern museums in town.
